    Phoronix: Threadripper 2, Spectre, Steam Play / Proton & Linux 4.19 Made August Super Exciting

    Well, if Proton actually allowed Windows games to be transparently played on Linux that would of course be awesome.

    But after researching it for a few days it doesn't appear it will ever do that. It's not even clear that that's its purpose. So far it only supports a handful of games that already work quite well under Wine, and evidently any supported games in the future will demand that each game's installation be individually tweaked to work. Of course this would still be great if Valve planned on going back and doing it for thousands of games, but as I said that does not appear to be their intention.

    It also seems that if they really had anything new to speak of they would have come out with at least a few games that don't work on Wine already, like Elite Dangerous or others with complex and difficult to solve issues.

    But this just seems like "Hey, let's throw a copy of Wine in with Steam and make a few games work with it."

    I do hope I'm wrong.
